Be a Part of EHI's Families Helping Families
Want to have more time with your family?
Want to share a "deviceless dinner" with your family?
Want to help families in crisis in your community?
If yes, join us, Emmanuel House International, at our Annual "Beacon of Light" Benefit with a twist. We are changing our focus for this event to be "Families Helping Families" and so have created a "Family Fun Night" for family members of all ages to come and enjoy.
We will have an arts & crafts table and a board games table, primarily for the younger members of your family, but all are welcome to enjoy. For the "over 21" members of your family, we will be holding our annual Silent Auction (with a few special Live Auction items) for your bidding pleasure while doing some early Christmas shopping.
All of this will be happening at 4 Brothers Restaurant (654 Route 6, Mahopac, NY 10541, (845) 628-4404) who will be serving you Italian appetizers, dinner and dessert reminiscent of Mama's homecooked Sunday dinners. Auction bidding will open during appetizers with beverages(cash bar will also be available) and continue through dinner. Bidding will close just prior to dessert when the winners of the auction items will be announced.
You and your Family can be a "Beacon of Light" to our Moms and Moms-to-Be and their Families! Join us for our "Family Fun Night", donate an item (or two) and/or be a Sponsor for this evening, and you will be a "Shining Light" making such a difference as "Families Helping Families"! See you there! We look forward to seeing there!
A minimum donation of $75 per person is requested. Donations can be accepted at the door rather than online; just RSVP for free and we will accept your cash or check donations at the door!
EHI offers confidential and nonjudgmental pre-natal and after-birth support and material assistance at no charge to Moms, Moms-to-Be and their Families who are in crisis due to unplanned pregnancies and live in Putnam County and neighboring Northern Westchester and Eastern Dutchess Counties.
At EHI, Clients receive new and gently-used maternity, baby, toddler, children and adult clothing, as well as emergency baby supplies such as diapers, wipes, and formula. EHI also refers Clients to Donors able to provide baby equipment and furniture as well as to resource providers for assistance with healthcare, counseling, insurance, childcare, transportation, rent, utilities, education, employment, nutrition/food, housing, finances and legal issues. In this way, EHI becomes their "Beacon of Light" so they and their Families can "Get Out of Crisis & On Their Feet".
